BAYCATS AND MOTHER NATURE RAIN ON CARDINALS

Posted on Jun 6, 2016 by Mike Marasco

Hamilton and Barrie met on Sunday afternoon at Bernie Arbour Stadium in IBL action but they were joined by a third opponent, Mother Nature. The teams would hold out for 127 minutes during a rain delay before the Baycats left with a 17-7 win. Barrie would get 24 hits in the game with Ryan Spataro, Jeff Cowan and Connor Morro each having four hits. For Hamilton, Dre Celestijn went three for four with two runs and an RBI.

The Baycats opened the scoring in the top of the first when Spatara, who singled to open the game, scored on Kevin Atkinson’s double. They would extend their lead in the second when they scored six times. Three straight hits opened the inning with Cowan scoring on Branfy Infante’s single. Spataro and Kyle DeGrace would each single to bring in runs for Barrie in the inning.

Hamilton would get a run back in the bottom half of the inning. Celestijn singled to open the Cardinals half of the second and later scored on a Chris Beer sac fly. At that point the wind and rain moved in and caused a delay.

Once the game restarted the hits and runs kept on coming. Barrie added a single in the third to regain their seven run lead. Hamilton responded in their half of the inning as TJ Baker, who doubled, scored on Marcus Dicenzo’s double. Dicenzo would then move up on a wild pitch before scoring on a passed ball to cut the Barrie lead to five.

Tyler Hardie would get the Cardinals a run closer when he singled in Jake Osborne in the fifth inning.

The Baycats would go on to add a run in the sixth, six in the seventh and two in the eighth with Jeremey Walker hitting a three run homer in the seventh. Hamilton add a run in each of the seventh, eighth and ninth inning but could not get closer.

For the Cardinals, Chris Lazar took the loss, going six innings, allowing nine runs on 16 hits, walking one and striking out two. Russ Burroughs came in but failed to record an out, giving up three runs on two hits and a walk. Kyle Adoranti would then came in and pitch an inning and a third, allowing five runs, only two of which were earned, on six hits, walking one and striking out two. Lake Molleson and Robert Wilson would combine to pitch the final inning and two-thirds with Wilson picking up a strikeout.

For Barrie, Cole White picked up the win going five innings, allowing four runs on five hits, walking two and striking out four. Jaspreet Shergill relived White and went two innings, allowing a run on three hits and picking up a strikeout. Adam Hawes and Chris Nagorski would each pitch an inning with both giving up a run on two hits while Hawes walked one and struck out one.

The Cardinals will rest up after the busy weekend and prepare for their game on Friday night at Bernie Arbour when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs. Cable 14 will be at the game to tape it for broadcast on Saturday night. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 PM.
